Maybe it's just my randomly firing synapses,
But I think about nothing but you as time passes
I'm no home run hitter, but I'll still step up to bat,
and now you know that's why I'm back,
Back for the attack!

Now bear witness,
I return defenseless,
to set the pavement made with my intentions here.

Holding it together,
Thought out every letter of every word in every sentence so carefully
(I thought out every word, every sentence so carefully)

It’s not enough, it's too late
It’s not enough, it's too late

Problems surfaced and they capsized our relationship,
I now propose this expedition to salvage it,
The weather may start getting rough,
Our tiny ship may be tossed,
I'll not be stopped by acts of god,
I'll get you back at any cost

Now bear witness,
I return defenseless,
To set the pavement made with my intentions here

Holding it together,
Thought out every letter of every word in every sentence so carefully
(I thought out every word, every sentence so carefully)

It’s not enough, it's too late
It’s not enough, it's too late

It’s not getting what you want;
It’s wanting what you got,
and I haven’t got much left
So I dig my fingers deep
into the few things that I keep
and I find myself constantly fighting, screaming, biting,
trying to get you back!

    General CommentI think its funny to hear Rory talk about trying to get this girl back. It sounds really pathetic but ive used some of the same tactics he writes about like planning out every word that ill say to her.

    General CommentI love this song. More than anyone. Especially "Problems surfaced and they capsized our relationship, I now propose this expedition to salvage it, the weather may start getting rough, our tiny ship may be tossed, but I'll not be stopped by acts of God, I'll get you back at any cost." Thats the way I always feel when I get dumped. I always want her back at any cost.
